Determine Licensing on NetWare 6.0 SP5

What tool can I use to determine the licensing in use on my NetWare 6.0 SP 5 servers? I do not see anything in ConsoleOne or in the /portal view that shows me what is in use.

I also have a single Netware 5 server still hanging on to the network in a warehouse. Is there anything I can do about that one?

The owner has asked for an audit of our licensing and I have no idea how to provide it.

I've been with this company for 9 months and the Novell Network was not my responsibility until suddenly the network admin quit. I know enough to handle user accounts and group rights but beyond that I am working at a severe loss.

For 6.0 use NetWare remote manager or NWAdmin32. For 5.x use NWAdmin32

In NetWare 6.0, the official tool to manage and view licenses is iManager,
but as Anders already said, NWADMN32 can also be used.
For more details, check the licensing chapter in the NetWare 6.0
documentation at:

That was helpful thank you. I had never used NWAdmin32, my predecessors had always told me to use ConsoleOne for everything when I was adding or changing a user or security permission.

New question on the Novell 5 server:
500+NetWare 5 Conn SCL+Novell: 30 Installed (15 used)
500+NetWare 5 Server+Novell: 1 Installed (1 used)
600+Netware 6 User+Novell: 15 Installed (15 used)

I understand what the Server and User are. What is the Conn SCL?

That is a netware 5.x connection license (users)
> 500+NetWare 5 Server+Novell: 1 Installed (1 used)

That is a NW 5.x server license
> 600+Netware 6 User+Novell: 15 Installed (15 used)

That is a NW 6 user license

There is a nice licensing report available under tools in NWadmin32.
Oddly, there should be a NW 6 server license also. Type VERSION on the
server console to see more.

Licensing is different for 5.1, 6.0 and 6.5. There are a few document
in the knowledgebase that explsind it though.

Thank you for that piece of information. Unfortunately iManager is not apparently installed correctly on the Novell servers here. I attempted to navigate to the iManager URL on all of the NetWare 6 servers in the company (5 of them) and the connection does not work.

Those are server connection licenses. In NetWare 5.x, the licensing was
based on concurrent connections. In NetWare 6.x, the licensing is user
based.

I have attached the report from NWAdmin as a PDF and included in that is a screen of my tree.

This is a NetWare 5 server, the only one in the network.

I don't think that URL worked in NetWare 6.0. iManager was changed to
/nps/iManager.html in NetWare 6.5.

Actually, Anders asked for the version output on a NetWare 6 server to see
if licensing was really working because of the missing server license.
However your license report now shows that your server licenses are in
different containers.
Anyway, you now have a nice licensing report. Doesn't that answer your
initial question, or do you need additional info?
